Well Hello from Bristol this Mothering Sunday. I have just watched Songs of Praise which was a blessing. I have been treated today but still miss my own mother , despite it being nearly 19 years since she went home. I feel for those who can’t be with their loved ones today, due to risk of viral infection, especially my own sister who is home alone with her low immunity :-(.
But to look on the bright side… In between distance teaching and marking my classes work, I think I will get in more crafting than usual over coming weeks and some time in the garden.
Greetings! My blog posts seem to be few and far between these days – I can only put this down to the pressures of work and family. I have three teenagers at home and I am a teacher. This week has been 1/2 term. so that has been lovely and I have managed to get some crafting in. This does mean that I will be spending the weekend working though…
But to more enjoyable matters. My DT card for Creative Moments is made using a digistamp called Stardust 3 , from:
I coloured the image using Promarkers and then dug out some very old stash to mount it. The papers are from Hot Off The Press – one of my favourite paper brands. I had a small amount of this paper left and cut around the flowers and butterflies to make it look as though the little figure is pepping out from behind the flowers in the garden. I finished off with a sentiment topper from Hunkydory and some iridescent glitter.
Hello everyone – I am sorry I have neglected you over the last few months, but I am back!
And I am returning full of the Christmas spirit with this seasonal cards. I have made dozens of Christmas cards and I find the faith cards sell so well at the craft fairs I attend, plus I can send those left to people I know.
I have made a card without a bow for the Creative Moments challenge, but as ever the theme is optional – you can enter here or do visit to take a look at what the rest of the DT have created. I am using a digi called Bethlehem with verse from Eureka. It is coloured using Promarkers in gradiated shades of blue, with a little metalic gold for the star and the stable – I love blue and gold at Christmas 🙂
For this week’s challenge I have used part of a digistamp. This is such a vertitle stamp from Sheepski, called Breezy Beach Walk. It can be used whole for a card for a girl or lady, or cropped to a seascape to make a gorgeous card for anyone. I printed onto watercolour paper and coloured with Aquamarkers.
I am so deigghted with tnhis new paper from Stampin’Up! combined with a hand-coloured image from Mo’s Digital Pencil – it is perfect for my sister’s birthday today. She loves to wear orange and I love to wear red – though we carry a few more years than in Mo’s gorgeous digi image. And our mother loved toadstools. Summer might just have officially started but I love these autumnal colours together. I have used Promarkers to colour the girls.
The sentiment comes with the image too. DO take a look at Creative Moments for more beautiful projects and to enter our challenge.
So, a fiftieth party of fizz and cake, for two friends who like running! I found these two perfect digis on Polkadoodles’ Etsy store and used backing card from Hunkydory. I cut some of the backing cards to use the bunting and cupcakes as embellishments. And di dthe inside too. (Apologies for the ascribbling, I should have photographed before writing), I then made a gift tag using the same Hunkydory kit.
Creative Moments has lots more fun cards at there Just fro Fun challenge this week!
